  The second LHC ion run took place at 1.38 A TeV/c per beam in autumn 2011; more than 100 inverse microbarns was accumulated by each of the experiments. In addition, the LHC injector chain delivered primary Pb and secondary Be ion beams to fixed target experiments in the North Area. This paper presents the current performance of the heavy ion production complex, and prospects to further improve it in the near future.
